http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HN1Rwjbr70When it comes to better US/Jamaica crossover attempts, last year’s “Anything Goes” is more than the sum of its parts. Wayne and Lexxus’ singer/Deejay chemistry is in full swing and for once, the American emcees feel like an integral part of the song rather than a calculated attempt at mainland rotation. Finishing each other’s lines (they rep when drunk and sober), Capone n Noreaga display more energy and enthusiasm than on the whole of their comeback album. While CNN’s attempts at recreating another War Report is admirable, I’d rather them become the 2009 Beatnuts sans-production skills than drop sub-Cormega Thun rap. Bonus points for the slightly better than average JA hood video too.
